Tom DeLay And Reince Priebus Wonder Why The Obamas Keep Mentioning Race
Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said in an interview yesterday that First Lady Michelle Obama was promoting “racism” when she pointed out in a commencement address this weekend that there is still segregation and racial inequality in America’s schools.
After playing a clip of the first lady’s speech, Newsmax host Steve Malzberg asked DeLay, “I’m not sure what she’s pushing for. Is she looking for bussing?”
“What she’s pushing for is racism,” DeLay responded. “Michelle Obama and Barack Obama can’t do anything unless there’s a certain amount of race involved in it.”
While DeLay conceded that there are racial inequalities in some “inner cities,” he blamed that “leftist organizations” who have “have completely destroyed the education system.”
“Mostly around the country, race has no part being played in our education system,” he claimed. He speculated that the Obamas talk about racial inequality “because it keeps people motivated to see their point of view, they’re world of view, and follow them right over the cliff.”
Malzberg continued on the subject in an interview with Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.
Quoting Attorney General Eric Holder’s remark that “outbursts of bigotry” like Donald Sterling’s can be less harmful than the “subtle racism” of “policies that impede equal opportunity,” Malzberg told Priebus, “It just seems that this is a Justice Department that is 100 percent only involved with race, racial issues. And one way!”
“Yeah, it is interesting that you point it out that way. There’s so many examples of that in regard to how Eric Holder runs the department,” Priebus agreed. He then suggested that racial inequality in public schools could be eliminated through school voucher programs.
The DOJ is currently working in Lousiana to make sure a school voucher program isn’t increasing segregation.
